A special place in Hell

I believe in Hell.  I believe there is a special area in hell dedicated to bike thieves.  They are destined for an eternal torture that includes a never ending headwind, golf ball sized hail, acid rain that boils the skin, no hydration, bonking, a corner store just ahead, but they never can reach it, a crank that slips on every rotation, saddle soars, occasional blasts of artic air that freeze to the bone marrow followed by extreme heat that causes a tingling sensation that is best described as having their skin stripped one layer at a time.  Actually, I think it is much harsher, but I really don’t want to disturb my readers with graphic images.

Why am I off on the Bike thief tangent?  Unfortunately, yet another Tucson cycling family was violated last night.

Stephanie and David Raine use their bikes as their primary form of transporation.  They live in Sam Hughes near 4th and Tucson.  On the night of August 30th, 2013 they had three bikes stolen from their home.  Please keep an eye out for the following bikes.  As I get more details on each I’ll update this post.
